Example text

Again, a paradox, Deleuze's critique being both immanent to the system of faculties, as an intensive depth, whilst at the sametime differentiated from Kant, not as a single line of departure, but through the selection of tiny intervals, and their connection in a movement which transforms the nature of the conditions, and opens out the potential for a Kant whose problems are not locked into a subject. His concern is not to establish a doctrine of faculties, but to determine its presuppositions and discover its machinery.

The receptacle nurses becoming, but is itself immutable. It is this supposedpermanenceof function attendant on women which becoming-woman seeks to break away from; from women as reproductive and essentially sexual creatures to women as self-organizing systems which are effected only through their interactions with other machines in their environment, which is no longer defined as nature, indeed, which has no definition until it is generated. Deleuze has been criticized for neglecting feminist projects directed towards the constitution of a specifically female subjectivity.

This meansthat this determining synthesisis not transcendental. In order to understandthis dynamic relation of the faculties, therefore, a thought of passivity not delimited in advanceby understanding needsto be formulated: this is the topic of a later chapter, however, so will not be pursued here. A further point is that the type of activity associatedwith understanding differs from that attaching to imagination: the former is described by Kant as spontaneous,the latter as productive. In order to preclude the 32 Chapter 1 collapse of the Kantian architecture into the dry zones of conceptsand understanding, these differences need to be articulated; if they are not, the dynamic relation amongst the faculties is subsumed under formal constraints imposed by the operations of judgement and the functional unity of the categories,and the problematic aspectsof the system of faculties, together with the manner in which Deleuze understands this as integral to critique, to critical method, are lost.
